Sorted hasn't really recovered his form after taking a crashing fall at Roscommon in September and tackles the minimum trip for the first time. Baby Whizz has progressed with each run in bumpers and his pedigree suggests he will do better over jumps. Top Of The Head made a fair start behind Luddsdene at Punchestown and hails from a top-class jumping family but the form pick has to be DOWN IN NEWORLEANS. Mags Mullins' charge had little chance in a Grade 3 over three miles at Cork last time but earlier efforts in much better races than this point to his obvious chance, though this will be his first start over the minimum hurdles trip.
